Day 4: Into Calgary.


Something weird happened today.

I was driving in this flat place and then, gradually, the flat gave away to rolling. Up and down over and over again. Like waves of earth. It was different at least. The novelty lasted for about 6 hrs then, just as I was beginning to curse the size of this country, 3500km and 36hrs of driving later, Calgary rose out of the distance with these huge pointy things looming in the background like silent sentinels. I think they’re called ‘Mountains’. Just when I was convinced, like some 14th century sailor, that the whole world was flat.

I once thought that cycling across Canada would be an exciting thing to do. Having driven only half the way, I have changed my mind. Epic, staggering and very long, but not exciting. It would be a mind and body numbing grind.

Flying sound good.

Stampede is on in Calgary. It’s kind of a big deal out here. Will check it out before we leave.

Ride tomorrow.

Pick up my honey the day after!
